It signifies the ATIS transmission he has monitored prior to contacting the tower (or approach) controller. This contains the QNH/QFE, runway in use, various met information and other pertinent information. I was told to be a bit more precise about it: - "Munich Tower, Delta Foxtrot Delta Mike Echo" - "Delta Mike Echo, Munich Tower - go ahead" - "Delta Mike Echo, a Bf 109 VFR from Ingolstadt, 10 miles north of reporting point November at 3,500 feet, request clearance to enter the control zone via November for landing, information X-ray received, QNH 1025 HPa [the QNH in the ATIS must be repeated]"
